Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
COD4 FREEZES AFTER SHORT TIME OF PLAY RESTART RUNS FOR AWHILE FREEZE, RUNS FOR AWHILE FREEZES
DOES THE SAME W/MADDEN 09
Freezing is due to heat issues and/or scratched discs. Mostly heat. I have seen MANY PS3 mother boards that have not had enough heatsink paste applied to the CPU or GPU by Sony to disperse the heat evenly. Also another common problem is dust build up. No matter how clean you think the inside is, there is always dust build up. The easist way to clean it is to get a can of compressed air and stick the straw into the front and side holes and let it rip. It should blow 70-80% of the dust build up out the back of the PS3. You will may even see a cloud come out as I have so many times.
Now for the COD4 online problems....the company that made the game and supports the online play (Infinity Ward) has cut back the number of servers used to support the online game play since the traffic has slowed down. Unfortuantly, I think they scaled back too much. I sold my copy of this game because it was too hard to get into a lobby and stay there for more then 3 min.
I hope this helps you both out. Good luck and happy gaming!!
